TUESDAY NOVEMBER 9, 1982 – WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 22, 1982
Storefront’s first solo exhibition, Drawings in Lead, focused on the work of Japanese-born, Brooklyn-based artist Toshio Sasaki. Sasaki’s work consisted largely of reliefs and sculptures created by molding sheet lead around wooden framed forms. Referred to by Sasaki as ’drawings in lead,’ these works investigated the diverse applications of the material, its malleability, strength, color and texture. Incorporating motifs such as waves, seashells, waterfowl and fish in geometric fields, Sasaki’s sculptures explored philosophical and mathematical dynamics in nature. The exhibition at Storefront included several freestanding works and wall-hung reliefs.
